The former interim champion and UFC lightweight Tony Ferguson is not going to buy into the reasons Habib Nurmagomedov, who led Dagestan to withdraw at UFC 249.
Recall that a few hours ago, the champion of the 155-pound reported in social networks that made the decision to withdraw from the fight against Ferguson, which was to be held on the 18th of April. The act Nurmagomedov explained that he feared for his health and can’t fight when the entire world was rocked by the pandemic of coronavirus.
It is worth noting that Ferguson could not penetrate the understanding to the defending champion. American Nurmagomedov accused of cowardice, saying that he already from the first days searching for a way to withdraw from their bout.
“Habib, I’m sure he already knew that he would not fight,” said Ferguson in the video, which he posted on his Instagram. “We scared him. He had the opportunity to come back from Abu Dhabi. He has the means to take the plane and come. This is the second time we forced him to give back. I do the same thing for 8 years – go into the octagon and busted my ass to take care of business.
I’m an assassin. And Habib with Conor around turn their tails like a freakin ‘ dog. Although they have no dogs, but a bunch of pussies. Habib is a bitch. I told him I would wipe it with a fucking hat, and the dude at the last minute merged”.
Also Ferguson has made it clear, that I don’t want to fight with someone else besides Nurmagomedov or McGregor:
“Whether it’s Habib or fucking Conor, or someone else… I always kick someone’s ass. I already won in a round Robin tournament among the five best fighters, and now they want me to start again. They want me to go through all five? I’m so fucking, I don’t think. I’m a champion,” said Ferguson.
Recall that Tony Ferguson is a series of 12 victories that began in 2013. My last fight the American spent last summer, for two rounds finished with UFC veteran Donald “Cowboy” Serrone.
